Bouldering in Ireland Guidebook Competition

At last!!! Dave Flanagan's long-awaited guide to bouldering in Ireland is out. Two copies dropped through the letterbox this morning to great excitement in the Robinson household. 
Front Cover
This is a stunning user-friendly guide, which truly does justice to Ireland's wonderful landscape and the bouldering opportunities which are on offer. The maps are clean and contain all the necessities to get you there and park up. The number of problems per grade is indicated in a colour-coded key for each area. Many of the photographs are stunning and the sheer passion of the boulderers in the pics for the local rock is both evident and strangely contagious. The large numbers of different climbers shown on the problems of all grades is a refreshing change from guidebooks showing just the great and the good. Get on the internet, buy a copy & book the ferry for your trip right now!
